Is yahoo answers an educational website?
I meant to put this in the freaking jobs and education category!
No, most people just troll.
Well, you are relying on the advice of other people, who otherwise might not know what the heck they are talking about. It is like Wikipedia, or ask.com.
Connor41 is right ; YA is over-run by trolls .
Somehow it can be but other times you get dingbat answers like I got a answer by copyright nazis on there once.
It can be if you ask a good question. There are smart people there with knowledge. Not someplace I'd want to hang out, though.
